p.1 #1 · One More Protea


I used a square crop for this one, trying to find the best way to display these. I also used a bit of vignetting to burn out the leaves as they transition to the edge of the frame. I processed this in Photoshop with basic levels and shadows adjustments, then duplicated the layer as an overlay, then reduced the opacity to about 25% to add some depth....

Thanks for looking!

Greg, I really like this.
Somehow if I try to do flowers in low key they end up being to dark.
Maybe the trick is to use a flower with light parts like you did. Very well done.

Thanks Chris. I guess I am unsure what low-key really means. I used two softboxes, one as a main light with an additional diffusion panel between it and the flower, and one as a fill set at 50% output (using speedlights) so I wasn't "trying" for low key... I've been through several lighting set ups that have produced very different results, but this seems the next best thing to natural light, which I won't have until later in the year....

Thanks Greg for mentioning your set up. Gives me something to think about.
